Reef Check Re-Launches “Artists For Reefs” Gallery

Reef Check’s Artists for Reefs Gallery is now open!

Reef Check has partnered with artists around the world to re-launch the online art gallery “Artists for Reefs.” The gallery was first launched by the International Coral Reef Initiative in 2008, as part of the International Year of the Reef campaign. The main goals are to promote appreciation for the beauty and importance of marine environments among the general public, and to raise funds for reef conservation projects. Have a look for your holiday shopping.

The gallery includes one-of-a-kind and limited-edition art pieces featuring a variety of marine themes. Participating artists include Ana Bikic, Barbara & Larry Domsky, Carlos Hiller, Courtney Mattison, Georgina Kenyon, Michael Wicks and Wyland. Each artist has agreed to donate a portion of sales to Reef Check. Through the gallery, ocean lovers will be able to support Reef Check’s international programs by purchasing amazing sculptures, paintings, prints, photographs, posters and other uniquely marine works of art. In addition, they will support the work of talented artists around the world who are active in protecting one of their great sources of inspiration.
